    Solving an Exponential equation symbolically using Logarithms

    I've been working on this problem and I just can't seem to figure it out.

    Solve the expression for assuming that all other letters are positive constants.

    I just keep running into dead ends where I have t on both sides or both t's on one side.

    Is this ok?

    \displaystyle Pa^t = Vg^t

    \displaystyle \frac{P}{V} = \frac{g^t}{a^t}

    \displaystyle \frac{P}{V} = \left(\frac{g}{a}\right)^t

    \displaystyle t = \log_{\frac{g}{a}}\frac{P}{V}
